City worker injured in snow-clearing operations
A City of Toronto Transportation Services employee has been taken to Sunnybrook
Hospital after being injured this morning during snow clearing operations.

The employee became trapped in a snow-melting machine that was being operated
in the Midland and Eglinton Avenue area. The worker sustained very serious
injuries as a result of the accident.

"Our first priority is for the full and complete recovery of the employee,"
said Gary Welsh, Director of Transportation Services. "Our thoughts are with
him and his family."

"The City of Toronto is co-operating fully with the police and the Ministry of
Labour in the investigation of this matter," added Welsh.
